The sand-road that leads to Small Yarovoe Lake adjoints to the main road in Vladimirivka. The camping locates between Small Yarovoe Lake and pond with fresh water. The distance between the lakes is approximately 40 m. Native people bring bread, milk, patties, seeds, and etc.
The concentration of the salt in the Salt Lake is rather higher and keeps a body of adult men on the surface. The seven extremities of the body can be located above the water surface. 
The salt allows you to relax on the water surface with an appropriate pose. The book reading is also available without any efforts. The belly down pose is more difficult but useful for your spine.

The Small Yarovoe lake is located within the Kulunda plain. There are no any trees. So, visitors have to bring a firewood every day to cook. The best place for a tent is close to fresh pond.
